Our ergonomic products will help you craft the hours away when combined with a little self-care. Taking frequent breaks to stretch is essential - here are some great stretches for crafters from knitfreedom.com. For minor pains, ice is a great way to reduce inflammation and get a little relief. Of course, if your pain persists, it's important to stop what you're doing and go see a doctor to ensure you don't have a serious injury or other illness. Once you get the go-ahead from your physician, you can pick up your needles or hook and get back on the crafting horse!
What makes Cubics so special? The unique ergonomic shape (a cuboid cross-section) provides comfort to the hand and yields uniform stitch formation. Because of the shape, you don’t need to grip the needles as tightly, easing tension in your hand and wrist.
Our Aluminum single-ended crochet hooks (available in gold or silver finish) and Steel single-ended crochet hooks feature ergonomically designed handles which are easier to grip, encouraging hours of comfortable crocheting. They are lightweight, durable and great for all crocheters, from beginner to advanced - even those with arthritis!
